Presenting... other boyfriends.

HEY GUYS. How about you stop SOMEWHERE in the prairie lands? I mean, I know Edmonton's not exactly a destination location, but I'd even settle for going to Calgary. I was considering heading to Vancouver for the October show, but things are (predictably) sold out. Dang.

I've posted this on the unnamed social networking site before, but it's worthy of reposting here. Behold! The Cool Ruler at his zenith.

I challenge anyone to look as badass in a powder blue suit.

Want to feel like an outcast at a table?

In response to the age old question "The Beatles or the Rolling Stones?", answer "The Rolling Stones".

That always has been, and always will be my answer. I've always preferred swagger. And a bit of sleaze.

The Impossible Cool. a fantastic (FANTASTIC) photo collection blog that makes me realize I'll never, ever, possess that level of cool, and I should probably just throw in the towel while I'm ahead.

Top to bottom: Newman, Redding, Coltrane & Davis, Boss.

Oh baby, give me one more chance...

So the last time I attempted to make sourdough starter, I failed miserably. "How is that even possible?" you might be asking yourself. Well...I can only guess that it had something to do with living in an igloo. No- an igloo probably wouldn't have had as many demon drafts! Let's just say it was somewhere where "set starter in a warm place for 4 to 7 days" would only have been possible if I had kept the oven on for 4 to 7 days.

So! Summer attempt. New house. Let's see what happens!

A time machine and Jamaica in the 70's.

I should have known better than to discredit Taj Mahal. Well, not discredit fully, just kind of shrug at for the most part. After all, this girl has a penchant for blues as old as the hills with no amplification. with most artists, all I have to do is dig into their back catalogues to find something delicious. Produced before I was born? Done and done. Goooood album.

Loveful heights to one and all.

I've been loving them, lately. Especially the plastic-coated wire kind. The older and farmhouse-y-er the better.

Case in point: two recent second hand purchases!

Clever wings up/down handle design on the yellow chicken....

...And just enough rust on the new apple basket.

Total: $5. Woohoo!

A cautionary tale:

If you try to decorate cupcakes with Jim Beam on your side, it will LOOK like you decorated cupcakes with Jim Beam on your side.

Sloppy action! Ew. At least the flavour still holds up.

So, remember the epic baking fail I had a while back? Well, the baking gods have smiled upon me again.

This is probably the BEST banana bread I've ever made- and I'm a sucker for and connoisseur of quick breads, so that's saying a lot!

Steady-rock cool killer...

...Rocksteady floor filler.
